3D Paper Trimmer January Blog Hop - My favourite SAB item...

Good morning and welcome to the 3D Paper Trimmer January Blog Hop.

This month we are creating with our favourite Sale-a-Bration item.  

There are some amazing items which you can earn for FREE with a qualifying spend of £45 during the Sale-a-Bration promotion.  By far my favourite item in the promotion is the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper and co-ordinating stamp set, Berry Blessings (FREE with a £90 order).

I am sharing a cute gift bag with you today, similar to a bag which was designed by a demo, Val Moody, several years ago but sadly I have mislaid her original instructions so it was made from memory.

Berry Blessings

The bag is quite a good size with the base measuring 5" x 3".  

Berry Blessings

You start by creating a box for the base and the paper is cut at 8 1/2" x 4" (x2) which surrounds the box base before adding handles and decorating the bag as you wish.

Berry Blessings

The greeting is taken from the stamp set Beautiful Friendship.

I hope you like my project, I am now going to pass you on to Simone who I know will have something beautiful to share with you today.
